HELP with Brakes... PLEASE

Ok, so I went to move my 2001 Itasca Suncruiser 35U yesterday and noticed a puddle and drips when I moved it. Upon further inspection, it was brake fluid and appears that one of the metal brake lines from the reservoir area to the module mounted to the frame on the driver's side just behind the front tire (ABS?) has cracked/split.

This is based on a Ford F53 chassis and I am trying to find info on the brake system (layout, bleed procedure, etc.).. Does anyone have a link or anything to the factory service manual?

I don't know of any available service manuals for any year F53 chassis. You'll probably need a truck mechanic to get involved most likely.

I have a 2012 Itasca Sunova 33 on a Ford F53 chassis. I found a shop manual on cd on ebay. Used it over the years. The only hitch is, I have to change the date on my pc back to 2012 so it doesn’t say its expired.
I’m in the process of fixing 2 brake lines now. Depending on where the rust problem is, it’s not too had to fix. Here’s a link to a helpful site
